Default Whitevomr + Air Ride + Audio = WIN

This is not meant to be any advertisement of any sort so please donít delete the thread. I just wanted to post a build log for Daniel (Whitevomr)

Daniel brought all his own equipment. All we did was use mdf to make what he had work as well as carpet to finish off things. It was a budget build.

Awe she so pretty with those new wheels



This is all the stuff he brought for us to install



In the bay



Beginning tear down



Before



Original speakers



Stripped



Made baffles







Driverís side front door done



Passenger side door

Stock tweeter and bracket

Ran the power wires for the audio and secondary battery that will power the air ride compressors



Fusing

Ripping out the C-pillars and seats

















Removed the stock sub





The interior was then placed on the car for garage space issues. We placed microfibers underneath it all so there wouldn’t be any scratches



Old vs. New I wonder what that 10W7 will sound like in the rear deck…. Best if we don’t try haha





Amplifier wiring





Amp bypassed, crimp caps were placed for speaker recognition.






Radio install





Peek-a-boo John
